Royals went out of the FA Cup tonight at St Andrews after going down to Birmingham City.
Despite hitting the woodwork twice, Reading lost to a Blues side who produced goals from Mickael Forssell and Julian Gray, either side of an equaliser from Steve Hunt.
Birmingham’s reward will be a trip to the Britannia Stadium to face Stoke in the next round and their manager Steve Bruce was delighted to get the game won.
He said: 'I'm delighted for the young lads, it was a horrible night and the ball was swerving all over the place in atrocious conditions.
'It takes a little bit of time to settle, a few of them haven't played at this level.
'I thought the reaction was terrific after Reading equalised.'
